While I was waiting to check in at the hotel, I went for a walk down Main Street, looking for a place to have late breakfast. It was around noon, but I can eat breakfast all day, so when I saw Maple Street Biscuit Company, just off Main Street, I immediately decided to give it a shot.
Maple Street Biscuit Company is a chain restaurant known for, surprise, surprise, biscuits. They both serve biscuits with gravy and biscuit sandwiches, so how is a girl to choose?
I asked the staff, and they suggested The Squawking Goat, which is a biscuit sandwich with fried chicken and goat cheese. The goat cheese/chicken combo sounded delicious, so that’s what I ordered. It’s self service at Maple Street, but they don’t ask for your name with your order. Instead, they ask you to answer a question, which changes on a daily basis, and when I was there, the question was, who my favorite teacher was (favorite teacher, oh, that’s Hanne!).
While waiting for my food, a quick Google search revealed that apparently, The Squawking Goat is what everybody who visits Maple Street Biscuit Company, is raving about, so my expectations were sky high. Though I almost missed that my food was ready, both because my goldfish brain had forgotten that I answered the question, but also because of the American pronunciation of Hanne, which was a far cry from how Hanne is pronounced in Danish:)
The Squawking Goat consists of a flaky, freshly-baked biscuit, perfectly fried chicken and a fried goat cheese medallion drizzled in pepper jelly. This combination of flavors and textures was unlike any biscuit I had ever had before. The pepper jelly, in particular, was a standout – its sweet and spicy flavor added a unique twist to the dish. So delicious, but also quite filling and a bit messy to eat. Be prepared to get your hands dirty, but trust me, it’s well worth it.
